This is a day trip to some of the impressive sites outside of Cusco City. The Andahuaylillas Church, the irrigations site of the Incas Tipon and the Piquillacta are all great sites to visit around Cusco.
What to Expect
Around 9:00 am, leave Cusco for the Andahuaylillas (a 45-minute journey), a small village famous for its beautiful church.
See the beautiful murals of traditional Cusquenian art, amazing embroideries, and carved altars. From there, head to Piquillacta, where you will explore the ruins of the pre-Inca culture of Wari.
Later the tour will take you to Tipon, which was believed to be an agricultural laboratory, which also has an impressive irrigation system. Tipon is also known for its "cuyerias" where cuy (guinea pig) are cooked in large ovens.
If you're interested, stop to try this traditional Peruvian cuisine (not included in the price of the tour). You will return to Cusco at 4:00 pm.
